Stephen Daniells
Your host for Probiota 2022, Stephen Daniells PhD

Making a swift return as a F2F event, NutraIngredients is excited to bring the very latest in cutting-edge science, business strategy, and key regulatory developments in the microbiome, probiotic and prebiotic markets.

Hosted by NutraIngredients’ very own Stephen Daniells, the show takes a magnifying glass to all things microbiome-related, what areas are growing, and in which direction.

Stephen will be aided by some of the industry’s most prominent thought leaders and business heads, each with unique first-hand experience to share of the challenges as well as rewards that lay ahead.

These special guests set the scene for day one and include Asbjørn Overgaard, CEO of Copenhagen Capacity, Professor Patrice Cani, Research Director of FNRS-WELBIO and Pierre Déchelotte, Chief of the Division of Nutrition at Rouen University Hospital and Co-founder of TargEDys. 

Probiotics and AI

Enjoy some free time to explore Copenhagen whilst you're at Probiota.

Dr Kimmo Makinen rounds off the first set of presentations with a talk entitled, “Challenges in the discovery of probiotics and how AI could change the game.”

Dr Makinen, the Innovation Director of Novozymes OneHealth will discuss the need to understand host physiology via the analysis of large quantities of omics data that can uncover underlying health conditions.

It may also reveal target population heterogeneity leading to opportunities to develop better targeted solutions. The physiological opportunities should be superimposed on insight from AI. 

The day’s proceedings culminate in a panel discussion, that asks, “Gut microbiome modulation for weight management – silver bullet or red herring? 

Chaired by Stephen, the panel will discuss the understanding of the microbiome and the role it plays in weight management.

The panel will attempt to explain what we know and where the knowledge gaps are. Also, how are these effects measured and can emerging technologies be leveraged to speed up R&D.
